Red and gold are definitely a beautifully bold color palette to work with. The bride who requested this board also wanted to incorporate some blue, to help her color palette work with her venue which has a lot of blue. I incorporated small amounts of blue into the flowers and also think giving the men red and blue striped ties would help incorporate it in a subtle way. She also wanted to elegantly incorporate a "message in a bottle" theme being that is how her fiance proposed! I used "message in a bottle" escort bottles, bottle candlestick holders and a message in a bottle guest book in this board for a few ideas.
